Enver Pasha in Turkistan’s War of Independence

In our country Enver Pasha is mostly known for the Constutition reform, the 31st March incident, his role in Ottoman Empire’s participation in the World War I and for the Battle of Sarıkamış.

Tekin Erer, the master author of the 60s and 70s, sheds light on Enver Pasha’s era of this little-known leadership in Turkistan’s war of independence in a narrative as fluent as a novel. “Who is this Enver Pasha?

How did he become the head of Central Asia Turkic forces? Hundreds, thousands of years ago, Ottoman Turks migrated from these steppe lands to Anatolia. They ruled over three continents for centuries. The last Commander-in-Chief of the Ottoman Empire was martyred at the first stop of the Turks. How much the life of Pasha and of the Ottoman Empire resemble…”
